Forum rules and no-advertising policy

As a participant on this forum, it is your responsibility to know and follow our rules. Please read this message in its entirety.

Board Rules

1. You're responsible for what you say.
As outlined in Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, The Chronicle of the Horse and its affiliates, as well Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd., the developers of vBulletin, are not legally responsible for statements made in the Forums.

This is a public forum viewed by a wide spectrum of people, so please be mindful of what you say and who might be reading it--details of personal disputes may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums' policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

2. Conversations in horse-related forums should be horse-related.
The forums are a wonderful source of information and support for members of the horse community. While it's understandably tempting to share information or search for input on other topics upon which members might have a similar level of knowledge, members must maintain the focus on horses.

3. Keep conversations productive, on topic and civil.
Discussion and disagreement are inevitable and encouraged; personal insults, diatribes and sniping comments are unproductive and unacceptable. Whether a subject is light-hearted or serious, keep posts focused on the current topic and of general interest to other participants of that thread. Utilize the private message feature or personal email where appropriate to address side topics or personal issues not related to the topic at large.

4. No advertising in the discussion forums.
Posts in the discussion forums directly or indirectly advertising horses, jobs, items or services for sale or wanted will be removed at the discretion of the moderators. Use of the private messaging feature or email addresses obtained through users' profiles for unsolicited advertising is not permitted.

Company representatives may participate in discussions and answer questions about their products or services, or suggest their products on recent threads if they fulfill the criteria of a query. False "testimonials" provided by company affiliates posing as general consumers are not appropriate, and self-promotion of sales, ad campaigns, etc. through the discussion forums is not allowed.

Paid advertising is available on our classifieds site and through the purchase of banner ads. The tightly monitored Giveaways forum permits free listings of genuinely free horses and items available or wanted (on a limited basis). Items offered for trade are not allowed.

Advertising Policy Specifics
When in doubt of whether something you want to post constitutes advertising, please contact a moderator privately in advance for further clarification. Refer to the following points for general guidelines:

Horses -- Only general discussion about the buying, leasing, selling and pricing of horses is permitted. If the post contains, or links to, the type of specific information typically found in a sales or wanted ad, and it's related to a horse for sale, regardless of who's selling it, it doesn't belong in the discussion forums.

Stallions -- Board members may ask for suggestions on breeding stallion recommendations. Stallion owners may reply to such queries by suggesting their own stallions, only if their horse fits the specific criteria of the original poster. Excessive promotion of a stallion by its owner or related parties is not permitted and will be addressed at the discretion of the moderators.

Services -- Members may use the forums to ask for general recommendations of trainers, barns, shippers, farriers, etc., and other members may answer those requests by suggesting themselves or their company, if their services fulfill the specific criteria of the original post. Members may not solicit other members for business if it is not in response to a direct, genuine query.

Products -- While members may ask for general opinions and suggestions on equipment, trailers, trucks, etc., they may not list the specific attributes for which they are in the market, as such posts serve as wanted ads.

Event Announcements -- Members may post one notification of an upcoming event that may be of interest to fellow members, if the original poster does not benefit financially from the event. Such threads may not be "bumped" excessively. Premium members may post their own notices in the Event Announcements forum.

Charities/Rescues -- Announcements for charitable or fundraising events can only be made for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations. Special exceptions may be made, at the moderators' discretion and direction, for board-related events or fundraising activities in extraordinary circumstances.

Occasional posts regarding horses available for adoption through IRS-registered horse rescue or placement programs are permitted in the appropriate forums, but these threads may be limited at the discretion of the moderators. Individuals may not advertise or make announcements for horses in need of rescue, placement or adoption unless the horse is available through a recognized rescue or placement agency or government-run entity or the thread fits the criteria for and is located in the Giveaways forum.

5. Do not post copyrighted photographs unless you have purchased that photo and have permission to do so.

6. Respect other members.
As members are often passionate about their beliefs and intentions can easily be misinterpreted in this type of environment, try to explore or resolve the inevitable disagreements that arise in the course of threads calmly and rationally.

If you see a post that you feel violates the rules of the board, please click the �alert� button (exclamation point inside of a triangle) in the bottom left corner of the post, which will alert ONLY the moderators to the post in question. They will then take whatever action, or no action, as deemed appropriate for the situation at their discretion. Do not air grievances regarding other posters or the moderators in the discussion forums.

Please be advised that adding another user to your �Ignore� list via your User Control Panel can be a useful tactic, which blocks posts and private messages by members whose commentary you'd rather avoid reading.

7. We have the right to reproduce statements made in the forums.
The Chronicle of the Horse may copy, quote, link to or otherwise reproduce posts, or portions of posts, in print or online for advertising or editorial purposes, if attributed to their original authors, and by posting in this forum, you hereby grant to The Chronicle of the Horse a perpetual, non-exclusive license under copyright and other rights, to do so.

8. We reserve the right to enforce and amend the rules.
The moderators may delete, edit, move or close any post or thread at any time, or refrain from doing any of the foregoing, in their discretion, and may suspend or revoke a user's membership privileges at any time to maintain adherence to the rules and the general spirit of the forum. These rules may be amended at any time to address the current needs of the board.

Please see our full Terms of Service and Privacy Policy for more information.

Thanks for being a part of the COTH forums!

    Oh, Dewey... I can't ever thank you enough... You've brought tears to my eyes. It's been so difficult knowing that he is no longer here, but something like that sort of makes it feel like he's living on by helping other horses...

    I got Gabriel from a rescue. Although that rescue is no longer around, I would be so very honored if you wanted to donate to Team American Saddlebreds (http://www.rescuemeasb.org/). They do amazing work rescuing Saddlebreds from auctions and other bad situations, placing them in foster homes where they can be rehabbed if needed and evaluated, then finding loving homes for them.

    TAS was also the organization who made Gabriel "Mr. September" on their 2014 calendar, if anyone remembers that. So, I think he would approve of a donation to them.

        Okay, I will start off by doing this page first. Baby steps!!

        ShoulderIn: wow!! Lease!!! And price is similar to taking weekly lessons? Hurray!! Will you be taking lessons on top of this? I'm excited to you and the facility and trainer seems like a dream!! Keep us posted!!

        TC- are you going to the show in horse park? I haven't look back to see if that's the one. If so, you will have fun!! Are you doing Saturday or Sunday?? Details please!! I will be in London (vacay!!!) or else, I will come cheer you!!

        Aqua- you must be uber fit! Soccer sounds exhausting!!! I'm glad Marie is doing well!!
        Mare is sound right now. She seems fine when I did a small trot course with her ( I will pm you video, my trainer is on this board, I'm scared to post too much sometimes). She's super cute too.

        BITSA: best of luck with the property, I hope it works out! Way to go with being the alpha mare!!! Sometimes you gotta be strict with the kids!!

        Classy- will get to the donation when I get home from travel! Dewey, such sweet thought!!

        Comment

            One quick additional note- my REGULAR orchestra starts next week, this is NOT that orchestra from hell with that crazy concertmaster.

            I got the music, and oh my lord. Dvorak symphony 7: the first violin section has notes up in the stratosphere again!!!! Wtf?????

            Comment


              Classy - so glad you checked in! And again, I am so very sorry for your loss. I, too, will be sending a donation in honor of Gabriel. Thanks Dewey!

              Paradox - sorry to hear about the noise, what a bummer and the odds of this happening again must be in the millions! I hope they are reasonable and will try to keep it down.

              BITSA - sorry about the land - what a disappointment. But, I firmly believe that everything happens for a reason. Maybe something spectacular is right around the corner. Have fun at the clinic and congrats on a great lesson!

              greys - how was the show?

              Faye - what the heck? Seems like you can't catch a break with the orchestra stuff lately!

              I know I've missed people - sorry!

              Trainer update - things have improved dramatically! I think she had a bit of light bulb moment when I backed off last week. She's thinking more "team effort" now - which is how it should be.

              Had a fabulous lesson on Saturday - got the most beautiful collected canter ever and started working on canter-walk transitions. Also did some lengthenings and boy does Dodger love those!

              Thank goodness it's almost Friday - why do short weeks seem soooo long?

                Re-Riders, you rock. I was going to suggest that we all make donations in memory of Gabriel, but I knew that I wouldn't even have to suggest it. How super that so many of you jumped on board. What a caring group!

                Will get my own donation in the mail today or tomorrow! Classy, I remember that "Mr. September" picture. I'm thrilled to support the group that put out that calendar and does such good work for SBs.

                  Hey guys! Hope you all had a great Labor Day weekend! We had family in town all weekend so I was too busy to post...sorry if I miss some of you, I'm way behind!

                  PF I'm really hoping your new neighbors will keep it down for you! I can't even imagine how irritating that would be, I would be sooooo mad! I don't really have any advice, but I'll be crossing my fingers everything works out. I was happy to read about the great ride you had on Katie! What a great feeling when everything starts clicking!!

                  Faye I'm glad you and the new mare hit it off so well! It sounds like she could be a good fit for you, but you've gotten great advice from the others as far as deciding if you are ready to move up to a more challenging horse or just have fun with Bobby for a while longer. The good thing is, Bobby will always be around, whatever you decide!

                  Pompeiii So glad to hear your boys are both doing better! I had great success using white lightening when Cash had a mild case of white line disease a couple of years ago. One soak cleared everything right up, it's good stuff!

                  Suzie What a great video! Sim looks wonderful, and I loved hearing your accents Your arena is lovely, DH did a great job!!

                  ShoulderIn How exciting about the potential lease situation! I'm amazed a lease is similar in price to 1x/week lessons! How many rides a week would you get if you lease? When do you get to try horses? Keep us updated!!

                  TC What a great feeling it must be for Cupid to respond when you are using your core! It's awesome when they get to the point you can leave them alone and work on yourself for a while. I just downloaded "40 5-minute Jumping Fixes" and I swear just the intro gave me an epiphany! It talks about how when we are kids we have to use our balance and deep intrinsic muscles to stay with our horses so we are better at feeling, and when we are adults we try to grip with our big strong muscles to stay with the horse, which ends up making us stiff, tense riders. Yesterday, I just focused on staying balanced and keeping all of my muscles completely relaxed and for the first time in a while, felt like I was riding as well as I did when I was young, and in doing that, you really do use your core. Oh! And great news about the show, I'm so excited for you guys!!

                  Aqua I can't remember...when is Marley moving? Wow, I'm super impressed with his reaction to the chainsaw, he has such a wonderful brain! Have you found anything that flusters him yet?!? Sorry about your quad, hope it heals quickly!

                  Bitsa Ugh, what a bummer about the land. If it's been on the market that long, hopefully the seller will reconsider your offer. I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason, so even if this does fall through, I am positive you guys will find the perfect land someday soon! Congrats on a great lesson, isn't it amazing how much our attitude influences our rides? Can't wait to hear how the clinic goes this weekend, who is it with?

                  Classy I will also make a donation in Gabriel's name! What a great idea Dewey!! I'm proud of you for riding a different horse, I can only imagine how hard that would be. Welcome back to the group, I know it's hard to keep up sometimes, but it really is such a wonderful, supportive place where you are always welcome! Glad to have you back

                  Tiger Phew, I'm glad to hear (D)T has changed her attitude a bit! I'll be crossing my fingers this continues! So happy to hear about the wonderful lesson

                  Greys We are dying for an update....how was Bravo?!?

                  *************************

                  Cash had a nice vacation (heat wave, family was in town) but we had a fabulous ride yesterday. He is always better after time off, go figure! The vet is coming this afternoon to try to get to the bottom of the muscle soreness/grumpiness during grooming ordeal.

                  My friend is finally out of the woods, thank you all for your prayer and jingles! She is going to be transported to the rehab facility sometime this week. She has regained her speech and is able to move all of her body parts, she even managed a smile this morning! Phew!

                  And the most exciting news, my barn is arriving on Monday! It will come in pieces and they will spend all next week building it. We've decided to try to put up the fencing ourselves, I am going with Centaur White Lightning (coated wire) which seems fairly DIY friendly. Hopefully this isn't too bad of an idea I just hate paying people for things I can do myself!

                      Sugar!!! Awesome on the barn! I am very excited for you. I know, that's weird, right? But that's going to be so exciting. Pictures when it comes, please!!!

                      And I am so relieved to hear about your friend. I was worried. So happy.

                      Tiger, I'm also very happy to hear about DT (she gained her D back). Keep those communication lines with her open. Glad you had a fun ride. Sounds like you are REALLY moving along in your riding. Yay!

                      Classy, so good to see you here again. And I really hope all heals and you're able to find another horse when you are ready. I think another horse might just find you! Keep us posted. I do love a good QH! My Toby was one of those "healing" horses. Good luck.

                      BITSA, so sorry the property hunt is being difficult! I wish you luck with it, and that you find and get the perfect piece of property for your family!! And nothing like a good cross examination to get he blood boiling, haha! Glad it positively affected your ride. That's pretty cool.

                      aqua, good job on the chainsaw! Stuff like that makes me nervous, thinking my horses will be nervous. I hate that about myself. I should just go in thinking it will NOT bother anyone. And to be honestly, usually my current two are good with most things. I'm learning to "get" that. haha. Hope your quads are healing!

                      ShoulderIn, good luck with the lease prospects!

                          Sugar: who did you get your barn from. When I was planning my dream house (before the property debacle) I looked at several "prefab" type barn companies, including BarnPros. Would love to hear who you went with and your experience.

                          I am doing the clinic with Jeff Cook.

                            Thanks, BITSA. I will do that now!

                            ETA, I didn't see a spot to put Gabriel's name on my donation, so I also sent them a quick email. I know it probably doesn't matter, but I wanted Gabriel's name on there!

                              P.S. about the "rocker" next door. I decided an alternative approach. I'm going to make a batch of cookies and/or brownies, take it there as a welcome gift. They have a closed gate at the drive, so I can't go in, but I can tie a bag of cookies around it. Maybe that'll lay some sort of groundwork and we can be friends. I understand the wife rides, which is something in common. I'll cross my fingers the music stays on the low side, or at least not very often. Funny both of my neighbors have been in rock bands, and not country music "artists". I guess we really are Music City USA.

                                Sugar: YAY for all the good news!!! Friend and Barn!! What a relief? Are the Bobcats gone? Sorry, gotta say that out loud!!!

                                The mare is actually not more challenging. She is actually super easy, no shenanigans, not spooky (I rode her back to where she lives alone no problem). In my group lesson, we have been just doing some simple lines (not sure what happened) but when I was testing said mare, trainer told me to do this course (all short cross rails), and of course, I cannot see any distance ( I am talking about between fences when you trot in and canter out!!!), mare was like, eek, no problem, I usually just stare at the ground and go oh shit....not enough to add a stride what to do what to do, by the time I said what to do, she popped me over and not killed any of us or the rails

                                If anyone interested to see the video, I can pm

                                      Hi, I'm new!

                                      I was a competitive rider when I was a teenager, mostly jumpers.

                                      I am in my mid-twenties and I've returned to the sport as an assistant trainer to an old trainer of mine, teaching children's lessons and exercising horses.

                                      I can't help but feel suddenly... jealous. Like I wasted so many years of learning and getting better by drifting from horses. Has anyone else felt some of this regret? I wish I could go back and tell myself not to give up riding for college (which ended up not suiting me). I could have gone so much farther and now I feel too old.

                                        PF I think the cookie approach is a GREAT idea, who knows, maybe the wife will become a riding buddy? That would sure make things easier down the road! I will definitely share pics of the barn progress!

                                        Bitsa I went with a Woodtex barn. I looked at barn pros but didn't like the way they looked as much. I also like that the Woodtex barns are totally finished inside and are very pretty. Here is the link to the barn I'm getting http://www.woodtex.com/l-shaped-barns.asp, we are just putting siding on it to match our house instead of wood!

                                        Faye I want to see a video!! She sounds like such a fun mare, I hope everything works out!

                                        Warning: LONG....sorry!

                                        The vet appt. was interesting...he had me lunge Cash to start and someone was feeling a little fresh and when I asked him to canter he exploded in a bucking fit and ended up falling down and rolling completely over ! Of course, when he got back up he was off on his LF. Ugh. Good timing that the vet was there at least, he stretched him and felt around and said he was fine, just stung himself. Phew.

                                        Then he checked his back, he was super sore in the lumbar and SI area, as usual. After flexions and movement evaluations he said he suspected kissing spines...great.

                                        I told him to go ahead and xray his back, I wanted an answer since we've been dealing with this for so long. Sure enough, he has kissing spines. Thankfully it's a mild case (1 out of 5) and the vet said it isn't necessarily career ending. We are going to do 60 days of robaxin and previcox and reevaluate. I am supposed to keep him in regular work, including jumping, in the meantime. After the 60 days, the hope is that the muscles will relax enough that the spinous processes are no longer touching, and hopefully they will stay relaxed for a few months until we have to do another round of robaxin/previcox.

                                        I just don't know how to feel about everything. My trainer thinks it's good news that it's manageable, and I agree to an extent, but at the same time it sucks that he has to be on muscle relaxers the rest of his life to stay sound. He has been so sweet and stoic and now that I know that's what is wrong, I feel so bad that he has been in pain for so long.

                                        Moral of the story, listen to your gut when you think something isn't right with your horse. I had numerous professionals tell me he was fine, and they would come up with other reasons for his behavior. Turns out, his saddle fits just fine (all the places the fitter thought were causing him pain are where he has vertebrae touching) , he is late with his changes sometimes not because he is "lazy" but because he is in pain, and he is grumpy during grooming because his nervous system keeps sending pain signals when I brush him. I am so glad I went against what everyone told me and got a second opinion.

                                        Sorry for the novel, but you guys have been with me every step of this journey so I had to give you all the details

                                          Ah you guys, I promise to catch up but I have a dilemna I need help with.

                                          I'm en route back from New York to LA. Tomorrow is Bravo's big pre-green championship class. He's been going quite well this week according to my trainer.

                                          According to the early schedule, the class was going to run in the morning. The plan was for me to see the class, drive to the airport and then fly to Monterey for my husband's sister's rehearsal dinner before her wedding saturday. She and I have become quite close and the wedding is very small (24 people).

                                          Well unfortunately, I just found out they've scheduled the class for 4pm so people all over the show can watch it. That's when my flight is scheduled. So I can't do both.

                                          I'm really torn. My sister in law got in a fight a few months ago about this potential conflict. But she's now saying (via text, thanks Gogo inflight service!) that it's ok if I miss the rehearsal dinner. I feel like if I miss it, it will really let her down and my husband's family will look down on my decision. But it's a big deal too for Bravo! I want to be there to see him compete, it's expensive to have him there and it's important for his overall record.

                                          My husband supports my decision to go see Bravo. My mom says I should skip it and not miss the rehearsal dinner. I can't decide and I feel like I'm too close to the situation to make a good decision. Help!
